Enter our first-ever Superhero/Supervillain contest for a chance to win a Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter! We’re also giving away an iPhone 6 to the most villainous project, and a Samsung Galaxy 5s to the most heroic. Whether you use your DIY super powers for good or evil, if it fits the theme, it’s fair game.

Stretch out that spandex and buckle your utility belt! Share your costumes, super snacks, makeup tutorials, and gadgets. If it can be used to thwart villains or scale walls like Spiderman, we want to see it.

Drawn to the dark side? Fire up the Jacob’s ladder. Show us how you ward off intruders, decorate your secret lair, and keep a close watch on your enemies. Your weapons, escape vehicles, and three-headed watchdogs are all welcome.

The judges will be looking for originality and well-documented projects. Will good or evil prevail in this contest? That remains to be seen.
